Lake Blackshear Fishing Report February 2013

GON Staff | January 30, 2013

Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 56-58 degrees. Clarity: Stained but not muddy.

Crappie: Good. Rusty Parker reports, “The crappie have really picked up the past few days. Several limits of nice-sized crappie are being caught both by tight-lining minnows and also by long-line trolling with jigs. The best jig is the R.A.G. Fly jig that is a chartreuse head/pink body/chartreuse tail. The people I have talked to who were tight-lining minnows have been fishing 18 to 20 feet, and the long-lining has been in shallower water that’s around 12 to 15 feet. If the weather holds like it is now, we will see the crappie start the spawn by the end of February. A couple of places that are great now—just before you get to Collins Branch while headed south, fish the deep water that follows along the banks. Also, some crappie should be staging around the mouth of Cedar Creek.”
